Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



I just thought of that last night. Was sort of funny.

I'm having a panniculectomy. Get it? Panick - u - lectomy? Never mind. I thought it was funny at the time.

Gross description, though.

"When a patient loses large amounts of weight, the skin does not retain its shape, leaving the patient with a large hanging apron of excess skin and fat below the stomach area, otherwise known as the pannus," says researcher Ernest Manders, MD, in a news release.

A large hanging apron of excess skin and fat. Oh boy. I bet all the guys are just wanting to line up and do me right now. It really isn't THAT bad. Just sounds gross. But, just wait. Whenever it is all healed up - I'm posting bikini pics in here!!!!

But, what is weird about this. When you google panniculectomy, I'm the seventh entry down. How sad for some person searching out this procedure and find me.

Not really panicking yet. But, give me time. I'm about to ditch work so I can get some things done. Anxiety will hit tonight, I'm sure. No food or drink after midnight and my surgery isn't until noon, so I'm going to be super hungry. Yuck.

    Good Luck! I'll keep my fingers crossed, which might make it hard to type, but you're worth it....
